It’s been quite a challenging start to the year, but the children have been so positive about all the new rules and regulations. Sports help children stay focused on their work and cope with all the new pressures. Exercise provides a wide range of mental health benefits, from building coping and resilience to distracting from negative thoughts and improving memory and sleep. To help with this, I will be setting some challenges each term for the children to train and have a go at learning a new skill.
Currently this terms challenge is ‘Improving our skipping skills’ and to motivate the challenge further, we will be holding a skipping competition in week 11 for any child from years 1-6 who would like to take part.
It has been wonderful to see the enthusiasm and joy on their faces when they achieve their targets and set new ones to beat. I am so excited for the competition and awarding the child with the most skips the AIC Thornlie campus champion jump rope skipper 2022 trophy. There still is time to enter the competition for those who would like to take part. All the best to all the participants inshaAllah.
